yeah i am from Australia. I have tried shopping at MSY before but had some issues with stock availability. Would you reccomend the HIS of the powercolour? I heard the powercolour 6950 uses the same board as the 6870 so i am a bit concerned about that. Also my gigabyte 6870 did not have voltage control so a little bit reserved when it comes to getting another gigabyte, unless it definitely had voltage control.
im not sure which ones do and dont have the voltage control.
i have been using sapphire ATI cards for as long as i can remember, beside having 2 year manf warranty they have always been a rock solid card.
The 560 Ti 900 Mhz tops the 6970 at 1920 x 1200 so I don't see the 6950 being in the picture at all unless your resolution is 2560 x 1600.
yea i want to xfire in the future. Definately seems that overall, the 6950 scales better than the 560ti, despite it being closely behind in a few, it lags behind greatly in several, even well bellow the 6870x2.
